Open registry by clicking start>run> type regedit>press enter.
on registry look for
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. delete upper and lower filters. restart computer if ok. If not, try to boot from optical drive using bootable CD(like win xp OS CD). if you cannot boot, replace optical drive.

Can't Play Blu Ray DVD


Hi,

You must be excited in playing that high definition Blu-Ray disc you have. Regarding your concern, CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive unfortunately, cannot play this format. You need to have a Blu-Ray drive to play that thing.

Thank you for visiting FixYa! have nice day.

My dell dvd rom can't read some cds and dvds


you were saying some? and not all the cds and dvds? it may be that those other discs are unreadable anymore caused by scratches, marks, or the like. if other discs can be read then the player is all good. also check what file format you are trying to play. it may also be that the file format you are playing is not compatible with the program you are using to play it with like windows media player, media classic, etc.

When I burn a music cd it will not play in my sterio or cd player, it only plays on the laptop. Can you tell me what to do to fix this.


Make sure the players can play the format you are using to burn. My surround sound system will play most audio but my car system will only play an origional cd format (AU) not mp3 or wav for example. Also some systems will not play cd-rw but will play cd-r and some won't play anything but origional cd's.

Emachine W6409. will play cd. will not play dvd.


sounds to me like you have a cd-rom drive and not a cd-r/dvd rom drive? are you sure it is a cd-r/dvd rom drive? If its not it won't play DVD's because CD drives use a different codec than DVD rom drives do. CD-r/dvd drive combos use the same codec though as one.

It says..please insert a playstaion or playstation 2 disc format.


It's not asking for a specific disc, it's asking for a properly formatted PlayStation disc.

This message could mean that any one of several things has happened:
* You are trying to play a Japanese disc on a US PS2, or vice versa
* You are trying to play a game that has been copied onto a CD-R/DVD-R
* Your disc is scratched/dirty/otherwise unreadable
* Your disc isn't a format that the PS2 recognises (i.e. CD, DVD, PS CD-ROM, PS2 CD-ROM, PS2 DVD-ROM, etc)
* Your PS2 is broken

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D
